These are photos of different pigments in their natural ground up state. I've never ever seen a display of pigments like this before.
The photos are from the shop where I bought my shopping trolley on the Tuesday afternoon. The photo on the left is the shop window and the one above is of the jars of pigment inside of the shop.
Ella (new painting buddy) then took me to visit one of her very favourite places - the shop of Livio de Marchi. He is an artist who sculpts the most amazing everyday items in wood. You can see a number of examples in this gallery on his website. I bought some wooden pears - quite unlike any I've ever seen before.
This is a photo of him standing at the door to his job. The hat is wooden!
(Note the rather nice and brand new shopping trolley on the left of picture)
